With an intuitive sense of form, Maryland's Eastern Shore artist Liz Tepper excels in various styles of painting and photography. Her Native-American background shows up in her earth and sky color contrasts and in her somber mood paintings. But her work reaches beyond any single-note subject and is most notable for its breadth and variety. Her ease in moving between abstract and representational painting and drawing is a hallmark of her style.
